 “On June 8, an OSCE SMM patrol deployed to the Golubovskoye settlement to investigate this shelling. OSCE SMM informed the Ukrainian side at the JCCC about this. At 9 am of June 8, in order to prevent the operation of the OSCE SMM, the Ukrainian army shelled this area from the Novotoshkovskoye direction using 82 mm mortars and a BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicle, damaging the building of a kindergarten in the Donetsky village. Because of the threat, the OSCE SMM officials left the region of Golubovskoye,” the LPR representatives at the JCCC reported in their Telegram channel.

The Lugansk representatives also demanded that OSCE “must give an appropriate judgment to the gross violations of the Minsk agreements committed by the Ukrainian side.”
